April 2012[edit]

Welcome to Wikipedia. Everyone is welcome to contribute to the encyclopedia, but when you add or change content, as you did to the article Stay-at-home dad, please cite a reliable source for your addition. This helps maintain our policy of verifiability. See Wikipedia:Citing sources for how to cite sources, and the welcome page to learn more about contributing to this encyclopedia. Thank you.

Re Stay-at-home dad article[edit]

Hi, the opinions that you expressed in the stay-at-home dad article, and on my talk page, may be true. However, when writing an encyclopedia such as Wikipedia we should not add our own opinions to the articles—the encyclopedia must only contain information that can be attributed to previously published independent reliable sources. If the opinions that you added to the article have been previously published by such a source then you are welcome to add them back with a citation to that source (such as a weblink or book title and page number). You may find the following Wikipedia policies and guidelines helpful: Wikipedia:Identifying reliable sources, Wikipedia:Verifiability, Wikipedia:No original research. Thanks —Jeremy (talk) 13:08, 1 May 2012 (UTC)

In response to your feedback[edit]

The problem with your edits there is that they were not referenced to a reliable source. If you think the article is unbalanced in presenting a rosy picture, find some reliable sources (generally, books or newspaper articles) talking about problems associated with being a stay-at-home dad, and then add text summarizing the view of these sources.
